Robman I almost forgot one of my alltime favs The Hampton Grease Band "Music To Eat" recorded in Feb 71. This 2 cd reissue of the original double album is a little nutty but has some real free form rock and roll. It is available on Amazon and you can read a hilarious band history on Guitar player Glenn Phillips web site. Zappa's Helsinki concert is a gem (it is also with the band that could play anything like on Roxy) I had the privilage of seeing this line up twice and they were great. on the archive I love the Codetalkers. They usually keep the time signatures stable but boy can they jam.

Mountain Bus - Sundance
1971 album features blissed out version of "I Know You Rider". Long jamming tracks with spacey mid sections and liquid, twin lead guitar work.

Cannabis - Joint Effort
1972 album, full of guitar interplay, swirling keyboards, and close harmonies which bear a slight similarity to early '70s Grateful Dead.

Circus - Circus
1974 album mixes bluesy folk rock (a bit like '70's Grateful Dead in places) with twin guitar interplay and some synthesizer driven progressive pieces.
